From today, BBC Three’s powerful short-form documentary follows 25 year-old James Young as he tries to regain control of his body after a terrible accident – by becoming part Cyborg – is available from BBC iPlayer and BBC Three’s YouTube channel.
James tragically lost an arm and a leg when he was dragged on to the tracks between two carriages of the London DLR as it was pulling in. Despite his loss, James refuses to let it interrupt his life and love of travel and video games.
In a bizarre twist of fate, James receives a bionic arm from Konami, thematically modelled on lead character Snake from our Metal Gear Solid series.
This moving story is told in a first person perspective including gaming footage and the use of innovative filming techniques with a new type of camera called a ‘dji osmo’.
